BREAKFAST NOOK // Parisian Chic

C’est moi, oui?

So thrilled to be invited to participate in a friendly design duel on Hello Splendor today*! The challenge: pick a table, a chair, a dish set, a centerpiece, a lighting fixture and a favorite brunch cocktail, for a breakfast nook that describes your style. I decided to go with a mix of vintage and contemporary pieces, add in some Lucite, fur and brass — et voilà!

I added in an art print and a rug to complete the room. For the other sources, go check out the post*! And make me look good, won’t you? Vote for my design if you like it!

Clearly I was inspired by my recent finds on Nuevo Estilo, some of which I posted a few weeks back that you’ll have to endure again:

It’s ok if you want to sigh. (I did!) They really knocked these out of the park, didn’t they?

In other news, my LUXE feature is officially out on newsstands! Hopefully I’ll get a chance to grab a copy asap so I can share. In the meantime, you can view it online here (p85 digital).

As always, a big merci!

*So sorry everyone, change of plans on their end, it’s going up tomorrow instead. Thank you for your would-be votes anyway!

  1. Congrats – what a great feature in Luxe!!! And I absolutely love your selections for the breakfast nook. Such a great mix of modern and vintage! Definitely voting for it. Also, I’ve been seeing that art around and didn’t know the source, so thanks for posting that, too! xoxo

  2. I love what you put together, and your inspiration is gorgeous as well. I actually just got that French print, I love it so much-I haven’t hung it yet but it’s sitting in my hall just waiting! I’m so clueless I didn’t even know it’s actually the lyrics from an old song-my framer pointed that out to me. Congrats on the Luxe feature, it’s fantastic!

  3. I just put the french print in my etsy cart last night! I love what you put together! Congratulations on your feature in Luxe- my sister-in-law works for that company and gave me a subscription to that magazine;I love it! Can’t wait to see it!

  4. Congrats on the Luxe feature! I can’t wait to check it out.
    And I sighed at the breakfast spaces too 🙂 They are all breathtaking! xo

  5. Omg. I love this post. I have a serious addiction to tulip/ghost chairs and I love seeing them in these spaces. And of course, this bronze lighting trend is really exciting me too.

  6. WOW!! What you came up with for the breakfast nook is insanely gorgeous!!! Very Parisian Chic indeed!!! I’m working on my breakfast nook as we speak and if mine is half as beautiful as what you came up with, I will be so happy!! xoxo

  7. First of all, so freaking rad that you’re in a real glossy magazine. I would be dancing with it all day and probably sleep with it too. I’m for sure picking up a copy at the airport tonight!

    Mixing pieces is where it’s all. Off to voting I go.

  8. I’d love my breakfast nook to look exactly like this one~ I love your style!! Congrats on the Luxe feature…I loved the sketch of you~ just perfect! 🙂 xx

  9. I don’t know why you haven’t left your hubby for me yet. We would make such beautiful interiors and babies together…..;)

  10. LUXE how exciting, Congrats!
    Now…how in the hell did you make that chandelier look so good. I have almost bought it several times but just never could imagine it looking this good in a room. Kicking myself now.

  11. Stunning spaces, especially the Drago Capital and the Mikel Larrinaga cought my eye, because of how clean they are. But every single one has something great. Either the colors, or the furniture, the decor, whatever it is. When I get my own apartment, I will try to incorporate a lot of ideas that I find through your collections of pictures on Small Shop Studio. They are very inspirational!
